HM: Dell Rapids uses the hook and ladder – Dell Rapids’ Brayden Pankonen
The final honorable mention features a little trickery as Dell Rapids’ Austin Henry throw to Braden Fersdahl who catches and then pitches it to Brayden Pankonen and he is gone for the touchdown. Dell Rapids earned the 19-15 win over West Central.
#5: A juggling grab for Foley – Harrisburg’s Aidan Foley
The fifth best play from October comes from Harrisburg’s Aidan Foley who tips the ball in the air and then brings it back in, while absorbing a hit. That set up a touchdown on the next play as the Tigers completed the undefeated regular season with a win over Brandon Valley.

#3: Crazy play leads to scoop and score – SDSU’s Malik Lofton
The third best play of the month is wild.

Despite this play, the Jacks would fall 42-41 to SIU.
#2: Timber Lake’s late score leads to quarterfinal win – Timber Lake’s Kedrick Martin and Hank Kraft

#1: Beresford wins via the walk-off – Beresford’s Tate VanOtterloo and Isaiah Richards
The top play of the month comes from the final seconds of an 11B first round playoff game.
